Cyber Gymnast

This card had some potential, but fell short of the mark.

The effect is simple enough -- turn any card in your hand into a Smashing Ground, essentially. Not a bad effect at all, but as shown by recent decklists, people want to be able to destroy a monster in any position, and they want to do it without a discard, involving a 2400 ATK Light Tribute monster.

In addition, people would rather not commit to a monster that can be run over by a Sangan, when they can just play Smashing Ground itself and pretty much do the same thing and play a decent monster. It's not like Smashing is limited or anything, so a deck that NEEDS that much face-up monster removal can have it in Spell form if it needs to.

Maybe if this came out immediately after Tribe was banned it would see more play, but otherwise it's too little, too late.

1/5 Trad.
1.75/5 Adv.

Happy Fourth of July to everyone out there as today is Independence Day! For the third year in a row I'm doing NOTHING today as I have to close at my job, but at least I'll still get to see some fireworks.

Today we are looking at Cyber Gymnast. Cyber Gymnast is being hailed as an alternate to Tribe Infecting Virus, which may be true, although the effect is watered down a bit. Instead of giving up a discard (with
Tribe) and declaring a monster type, you simply destroy an Attack posistion monster.

Not so bad, but you are going to want to keep this thing in defense mode, as Gymnast only has 800 attack. It could be used as tech to get you out of a pinch, but probably works best in a burn or offensive stall deck.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5 Why this over Tribe?
Traditional Stall/Offensive-Burn: 2.75/5

Advanced: 2.9/5
Advanced Stall/Offensive Burn: 3.85/5

Art: 3/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Cyber Gymnast:
This card made me give EOJ a proper look.

It is deffinetly tempting. A decent DEF, combined with Warrior tutorability make up for the useless ATK. The main advantage is, of course, the effect; once per turn, turn one card in hand into a targetted Smash. I like. Yes, due to the low low ATK, you can't use this like Tribe and just slap it down immediately. This requires more preparation.

However, it is deffinetly tempting. I'd say Toolbox will love this card and a few other people might give it a go, but I don't think it quite has what it takes.


Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4/5

Share and enjoy,

Cyber Gymnast :

Cyber Gymnast is a very , very good card. 1800 defense, Warrior and an d packing an effect making it worthy of any warrior toolbox.

Mindless destruction is a personal favourite of mine, especially in formats like this. This card essentially makes any card in your hand a controlled Smashing Ground. Personally, I love it.

1800 defense can more or less hold its own in today’s format, and although it’s earth, that only makes it a great reason to not make chaos decks.

Traditional ; 2/5
Advanced : 4/5

Art ; 1/5 Ugh, muscled women aren’t my cup of …well coke, I don’t like tea….
MPS ; 3/5
